In baseball, what's it called when the bases are loaded, and a run is scored because the pitcher walked the batter?

It seems like it would have some special name.

    Walked in a run is what it is called as far as I know.

    It's called a freebee by some.  Bases loaded walk is the most descriptive.

    An unearned run, or a walk off run.

    There isn't a special name for it

    Its often called "a bases loaded walk" - anyone with a basic understanding of the rules understands that this means a run is scored.

    Or sometimes they'll say "he walked in a run" - which again anyone who understands the rules knows that the only way a walk results in a run is if the bases are loaded.

    But there isn't a specific term for it. Just any description that says what happened with enough detail that a person would understand the rest of the situation.
